and police officers, law enforcement. i'm curious what role law enforcement can play in restoretive justice, what can be imparted as groups of people who may or may not be connected with the trauma. once you are traumatized by the school, politicians, et cetera, et cetera, then you have more of these power dynamic things going on in your head, i'm going to exert whatever power i have on these people, i'm interested in hearing about the restoretive power that we want to be part of the change. >> our organization just had a grant to partner with the department of justice to make films on exactly those kinds of things. we're going to be making a film on working with school resource officers and how to work with students. we don't believe we should even call anyone a bully because once you get labeled it stays with you. i've gotten letters saying there's a bully in my kid's first grade. the statistics show that about a third of the kids are bullied and bully others. as one kid said, i wanted to man up and show i wasn't going to be bullied so i did it to anyone else. breaking that cycle is g
. there are more robust ethics laws in los angeles that we have not yet implemented. san diego has a clear rule about when certain individuals need to disclose lobbying activities. thirdly we know that proactive enforcement is key to making reform successful and i'm committed to advocating for resources in this years budget process. i want to thank the city attorney and the staff and advocates for better ethics in good government . as well as for lobbyists and organizations playing by the rules and who believe others should play by the rules as well to quickly summarize the reforms , .that we are introducing their cover various areas first of all in the area of lobbying ,these amendments would expanded definition; it also would tighten broad exceptions that currently allow for most lobbying activities by attorneys and lobbing about city contracts to go unreported. we also have provisions to address reporting requirements for permit expediters and certain developers of significant projects in san francisco. we already currently have laws in the books for permit expediters, but those are narrowl
. as supervisor cohen pointed out, the budget is one of the most important laws that san francisco passes. it's a law of our source and how we spend it. and it's a plan that sets our priority. so it's important for us to hear from you what those priorities ought to be. i have here on my right, your left, a series of charts that show you a little bit more about san francisco's budget. overall the city's budget is about $7.4 billion annually. that includes all the funds we have to spend. all the city functions and the county functions and the airport and our police department and fire department and human services agency and our health department. you can see the next chart shows you where we get most of our money. so we spend a lot of time in san francisco talking about how to balance the budget. and we tend to focus that balancing conversation on what we call the general fund. those are the funds that the city has discretion over. in terms of making policy choices on what to spend money on and what to cut. where do we get our money? the biggest resource for san francisco and property taxes, i
francisco, he was the managing attorney for the asian law caucus. i first met ed in 1992 when he became the executive director for the human rights commission and we were both 16. that's two decades ago, ed. i watched him soon become the director of city purchasing and then going on to become the director of public works. i think ed is the only mayor in city history that can carry tlau on the campaign promise to fill the potholes because he actually knows how and he's the only mayor in city history that can say he actually knows every single city street because his crews probably paved them. i have had the privilege of working alongside ed for many years in city government. he has always been a cherished colleague and friend to everyone in city hall. he's done the job, he gets the job done, never wanting credit, just the satisfaction of doing the right thing for the people he serves in the city and county of san francisco. i was thinking about the introduction of mayor ed lee lastity and we'll taking the time to think about ed as mayor and ed as leader. i've been lucky to know ever
it would be best for the whole city to make this project happen because of the laws of the state of california that require that seismic upgrade of our health institutions, because of the tremendous pressure to improve san francisco and bay area and the economical structures that face this hospital and so many other hospitals. the job is never done. this is an announcement of where we are today, but we have to get this thing built, we have to make sure it's furnished like we are working on to make sure everything happens at a time when there is economic pressure and institutions coming from national decision that don't necessarily compliment the economic recovery that we are experiencing in the bay area. so, i want to put this into perspective for one great acknowledgment that i want to make is that this was not easy to do. lou's assignment here and i don't know why he took this up because it really accounted for hundreds of hours of his time to keep everybody at the table , but it is an acknowledgment that i want to make to thank the board president chu, and supervisor ferrel. e
that the law provides but also that it provides specialties and a center of excellence that is specifically outlined to ensure that saint luke's is a successful hospital. and something that is very important and something that we fought for and i appreciate the fact that cpmc is willing to work with us on that and also making sure that we have the option of building a medical office building to ensure the success of this hospital. so i am very proud of this result and as a supervisor for this district, we are here at saint luke's. i think that many many people will look back and be very grateful that we collectively got to this result. [ applause ] >> i also want to talk about health care and one of the things that is a really critical part of this agreement is there is a health innovation fund of 900-0000, working with the department of public health. included in that will be addressing the specific needs of the communities and neighborhoods that surrounds saint luke's with a focus on mental health which is a big priority for us. i'm very proud of that piece. and then, something that is al
that violates the law from seven days to 15 days to provide more flexibility and enforcement. it also provides the director and the commission the power to require a sound test as a condition of a permit. in addition it provides the director with the ability when a club changes hands into a new place of entertainment permit is required to provide a provide temporary place of entertainment permit to bridge the gap for the business so the business does not have to shut down. these are a few examples. there are other provisions in the legislation as well. today i did introduce substitute legislation and one additional amendment to provide the director of public health with more administrative authority to enforce noise violations on corner streets. right now there is not enough flexibility in that enforcement and we're doing that. as i indicated i worked closely with staff to come up with the legislation. we also worked with the police department before introductions of the legislation. the small business commission did vote unanimously to support the legislation. i am happy to get your
